Leaders from the financial, legal, policy making and government sectors join a special live Twitter chat (#sustyleaders) on October 24th.
Next week, we are launching a special multi-media feature, “Leaders of Sustainable Development,” which will take a comprehensive view of one question:
Why it is important to empower women as leaders in order to ensure sustainable development?
We hear from leaders in the financial, legal, policy making and government spaces who answer questions to: why it’s important to empower women in order to achieve a sustainable planet, the role men play, if they play a role and what that should be. Lastly, we will look at the reasons for hope. This series will illustrate why the goal is important in order to achieve sustainable development.
To mark the launch of the report, we’re gathering several of the featured leaders for a special live Twitter chat about gender equality and sustainability on Monday, October 24th, from 9 a.m. – 10 a.m. Eastern.
Join in the conversation using #sustyleaders.
